There's an activity called tree top walking - most exciting of the whole trip. There are buttons that gives out the sound of birds chirping happily. The height combined with... More

A bit of a trip to get too, but well worth it. Once you are there you could spend a whole day exploring the gardens, castle, and the museums. There is something for everyone, young and old. Well worth the trip, and money.

This lovely castle sits in farmland south of Odense. It is fairytale perfect with a moat and surrounding gardens. You can see the guesthouse as a museum and parts of the castle are set up as a traditionally styled historic home. There are also extensive exhibits of old cars, motorcycles, and bicycles.

Beautiful castle that seems to float on the little lake. Some good concerts (classical music) from time to time. But too bad you have to buy a ticket to everything, rather than select the parts you want.

Initially, we visited this castle with a view to comparing an old, egalitarian way of life in Denmark with that of England during a similar period. However, the visit covered much more; there were lovely gardens and an amazing collection of old cars and motorcycles, fit to rival Beaulieu Motor Museum! Agreat day out!
